    Contract Extension Looms for Goodwin

    Get it done - long term deal! i have absolute belief that Goody is our next Premiership coach

    May > Hogan

    This is a excellent article about May’s journey. He seems like a quality human. He is going to be huge for our team and the club as a whole. Steven May is the bloke who minds the huge forward that we haven’t had for so long. If he was at the club this year we wouldn’t have lost in Geelong and probably not against Sydney or Port either. He makes us a hugely better side even taking into account the loss of Hogan. I really believe that we are one of the best three teams in the competition going into next year along with Richmond and WCE. May adds that surety we have lacked. I can’t wait to see our backline when they are all fit. Him, Lever, Hibberd and Jetta working together will be magic to watch. Some serious hard nuts!

    Chook in Perth has always proved to be a reliable source. I met the bloke after our win against west coast last year and the bloke loves our club. I wish he was wrong but get the feeling g we are best to lose Jesse for what we can get. Whatever can facilitate the May deal and a little bit extra will do

    He did live with Mitch Clark for a while if I remember correctly

    Aaron vandenBerg not going - signs a new deal!!!

    Over the moon about this. When he first came back this year I wasn’t impressed but his end to the season was exceptional. A player built for finals!

    Something doesn’t seem right here. Surely if this was true the Melbourne based media would be running with this by now. Doesn’t add up. Basil and Bell know each other well from their time working at the same radio station 6PR. Plenty more to play out me thinks

    Those traits will be taken into account by possible suitors

    Also one more question - does Hogan have go in him? Sometimes I am unsure

    Many said they won trade week. My point is you said that you want us to be tough at trade week and many thought that both of those teams were last year. All that matters is we improve our list. Don’t get fixated on the one trade. Mahoney and Taylor have proven themselves very astute operators.

    As I said we will have to agree to disagree. For me it is about winning premierships not trade week. Remember who was touted as the big winners of trade week last year - Port and Essendon. How’d that work out?

    We will have to disagree. It is about the list being better next year than it was this year. That is the only outcome that matters. Proving you are tough in trade week doesn’t win you premierships.

    Agreed but will not be a direct swap

    But as others have stated it is about ensuring the trade period is a positive gain overall. This will be a huge deal but with one eye on the end game this deal is not the be all and end all. It plays a large part in ensuring we get what we want to move on the players/picks we want coming in. No point delaying this deal to the end and achieving nothing
